What the heck?

I was poking around in a site called EXE Warriors (Me and Fera used to go there if you don't know what EXEW is. It went dead in 2009.) and I learned that someone said someone predicted the world was gonna end in 6/06/2006.

Are people just being paranoid, or was something really gonna happen maybe?

I am confused...
Predictions are complete bullshit.
